Find your Hersheys kisses on eBay and use them to create an extra special chocolate party favor that everyone will remember or indulge yourself in a simple treat.
I know Hershey's chocolate isn't considered "gourmet" but I really love it! Perhaps it has something to do with childhood memories of sharing a Hershey bar with my mom, but I almost prefer a Hershey kiss to a gourmet truffle.
That may seem a bit crazy coming from someone who loves chocolate as much as I do, but what can I say? It's true. :)
Chocolate kisses are also a lot of fun. My hubby gave me a giant Hershey kiss on the night he first told me he loved me back when we were dating. Seeing a giant chocolate kiss always makes me smile.
You can also use chocolate kisses to make chocolate candy roses, or you can personalize your Hershey kisses with custom stickers that will suit any special occasion.
I had adorable custom sticker's made up for my niece's 12th birthday party and they were a big hit.
Kids love seeing their name on the personalized party favors. I got them on eBay for only a few dollars. It was well worth that small investment to add some personalized fun to the occasion.
Truthfully, I don't even need a special occasion to indulge in a chocolate kiss or two or ten... As long as I can get my hands on them, there is no such thing as a safe chocolate kiss! :)
Another favorite use for Hershey kisses is to make those kiss cookies called Peanut Butter Blossoms. Something about those peanut butter blossoms are completely and utterly addictive. The Hershey website also has a whole range of alternative variations on the recipe so you can create a flavor combo that you won't be able to resist.
Of course, you probably know that there are also all kinds of flavors when it comes to Hershey kisses. Back when I was a kid there was just the original Hershey chocolate.
Eventually they came out with a range of other varieties like the "hugs" which had the white chocolate swirled in, the chocolate almond, the Special dark chocolate, cookies and cream, and the chocolate caramel.
Of course, there are also all the cool seasonal flavors - peppermint, pumpkin, cherry cordial, macadamia nut, etc. When they are not in season, that's exactly when you can turn to eBay to find the flavor or sort you are interested in.
Here is an idea of what is available on eBay today. Maybe you can snag yourself a bargain.
